Race riots erupt in US cities

The riots, which have spread from Minneapolis to other US cities, come in the wake the violent death of a black man, George Floyd, a few days ago who died shortly after his arrest. A video showed a policeman kneeling on the man's neck.

    Rioters initially set fire to a police station in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The police were able to flee from the building, CNN reported. The situation in the city is currently tense and according to reports on social media, police have abandoned at least four police stations.

    There have been violent protests against the police in Minneapolis over the past few days. Numerous businesses have been looted. Amateur recordings show how liquor stores were robbed and a car dealership going up in flames.

    US President Donald Trump criticized the Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, via Twitter as “very weak”. If Frey is unable to bring the city back under control, he will send the National Guard to solve the task, Trump announced.

    Twitter censored President Trump’s tweet on mobilizing the National Guard to stop the riots in Minneapolis for “glorying violence” because he said that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts”.

    Tweets explicitly calling for violence in support of the riots were allowed to go viral with no similar warning label.

    The former American Football League star Colin Kaepernick defended the rioters. “Revolt is the only logical reaction,” he wrote on Twitter. The mixed-race Kaepernick is one of the most prominent voices against white America.

    American actress Frances Fisher called for a “race war” against whites and said she supports #BlackLivesMatter. Fisher tweeted Tuesday: “They want a race war. We’ll give them a race war. I’m with #BlackLivesMatter. We will win.”

    Trump responded to the Twitter ban by signing an executive order that minimizes liability over the content posted on Tech Giant sites.

    Meanwhile, gunshots were fired against the police in Louisville, Kentucky, the AP news agency reported. According to this, there were a total of seven injuries. In Columbus, Ohio, an angry black crowd tried to storm the Parliament building, according to the New York Times.
